Not too shabby
A lowkey but firmly on-trend look from DB who launched his own grooming range, football club AND haircut all in one week. What have you done, eh?
Let's be honest: 'fashion' is an wearisome business. Those of us who care spend the bulk of our youth and middle age just trying to keep up, trying to follow all the fickle twists and turns, all while trying to pretend we're not really trying at all. Exhausting.So it's reassuring to think that, at the age of 71, we can just put on a nice shirt, with a nice tie and a nice cardigan, before wrapping ourselves a nice, big, grey overcoat. Like architect of your childhood Steven Spielberg here, snapped looking ...nice. Also: warm.
Actor BD Wong aims for the layering treble - colour, pattern, fabric - and nails it. Even the red trousers work, free as they are in America from connotations of Hooray Henrys burning tenners for fun outside a regatta. Well done that man.
Nice guy Eddie met his adoring crowds / cynical eBay autograph sellers (who even buys those things?!) in some Dennis the Menace-inspired knitwear and a pair of the whitest trainers you've ever, ever seen. Not that they'll stay that way for long in January. He best brush up on his sneaker care.
Behold! The attendees of Pitti Uomo, the most flamboyant and Important weekend in the menswear fashion calendar. They're in Florence - and you better believe they're wearing clothes. This old boy was one of our favourites - because matching your buttonhole flower to the band of your hat is not a young man's game.
Call Me By Your Name star Armie Hammer wore a burgundy and blue check suit on the red carpet at the New York Film Critics Awards this week - a bold choice that, thanks to a mostly perfect fit, works better than it should have.
Who said black tie had to be boring? Inject a little purple, like Darkest Hour actor (and Oscar favourite) Gary Oldman, and it need not.
Rapper Common was out this week, opting for a royal blue suit and a slim fit to compliment his tall frame. Not sure about that goatee though.
It's easy to pull off the 'suit with a white tee and trainers' thing when you're hanging out in Palm Springs - and you're as cool as Get Out lead Daniel Kaluuya.
Champagne Papi has hit the year running with this sweater and peak label suit combination, showing how easy it is to make tailoring look relaxed in 2018. We like the (subtle) embracing of jewellery, too.
Diddy (Or is it 'Love' now?) arrived at Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday wearing a Gucci jumper, washed out denim and some fresh white sneakers, making him pretty much 2017 in a nutshell.
The most famous male face in the ballet world, Eric Underwood opted for an typically poised outfit for the Party with the Porters, combining subtle window pane checks with classic Oxfords and an off-white dress shirt. Nice.
One of Britain's most exciting young tailors, Charlie Casely-Hayford knows that the best way to sell your brand of meticulously-crafted suits is to look really, really good wearing them yourself, as he did when Net-a-Porter and Mr Porter hosted a Party with the Porters to celebrate the festive season.
And yes, windowpane checks are going to be huge (figuratively) this winter.
It's the man of the moment James Franco, looking a lot better here in a baseball jacket than he did in a leather one(trickier look, tbf). Watch his new film The Disaster Artist when it comes out next week. Trust us. You'll like it.
Absolute top of the B-list when it comes to inoffensive British actors, Matt Smith jumps with both feet into the 80s power dressing trend with a pinstripe DB. One tiny suggestion, if we may? Tuck the pocket square in a bit. Looks like it's trying to escape.
A quick lesson in making your shirt, tie and pocket square respect your divine authority .
Far better at stylish winter dressing than he is at keeping a straight face while starring alongside his brother in the aforementioned The Disaster Artist - admittedly a hard task (did we mention it's good? It's very good) - it's the younger Franco, Dave. Those blue shoes are nice aren't they? Lovely blue shoes.
Here's Chance the Rapper, hosting Saturday Night Live in a Polo Ralph Lauren Snow Beach Hooded Rugby top. Your 12-year-old self would have loved it. And he'd have been right, too.
Aussie style blogger Chris Burt-Allan here, embracing this year's shearling trend at what appears to be a drinks party in a disused abattoir. London, eh? I don't know.
Fashion scene staple Jefferson Hack is a Nicely Dressed Man of some repute, but what do we make of the bolo tie? As long as it's worn with a suit this nice - and not a stetson, riding boots or 'comedy' Texan accent - we say: why the hell not.
This is classic formal Pattinson: dark suit, slim tie, pale blue shirt, haircut that he might have done himself in front of the mirror in meditative silence and a semi-awkward "get me out of here" gaze.
We love it.
The recipient of dark horse Academy whispers for his role both in front of and behind the camera in the brilliant The Disaster Artist, James Franco further proves that his Stoner Bro days are well behind him with an understatedly stylish (and very grown-up) take on premiere tailoring.
